Welcome to the Peaks and Pints Newsletter

Welcome to the latest edition looking back at some of the posts that appeared under Life in 2017, covering thinks that interested, inspired or benefited me and I hope that they might do the same for you.

If somewhere isn't on my site it probably means I just haven't been there or occasionally it hasn't inspired me to write about it. I'm not a professional critic of food, travel or music, my blog is just a site to tell you about the places I have been to and liked and hope that you might as well.

I hope you all have a great 2018!
